Very nice :)
in reply to Transcramble - Random text generator
And very interesting, making some considerations.
Grouping words one by one makes nonsense, but we have a text
with the same stathistical properties of the original text.
Grouping word two by two of three by three is the same, but
we don't lost meaning (well, better, we don't lost too much
Using letters instead of words as units, I think (this is only
a conjecture) we could "mimic" the sound of the original language,
realizing a new kind of your Acme::Translator :). A kind
that could be difficult to obtain even making Acme::Translator
having Sex with Transcramble - Random text generator (brrr....).
Even more interesting experiments could be done using music
instead of texts. Using something from the MIDI suite
we could import a melody and use it to generate other similar
(in the sense described by your program) melodies.
Well, just a thought, but could drive to interesting projects
(I've always been interested in generative arts).
